Re: RAF Binbrook Show 1982 - Lightnings ! (large post)

Great set Keith :thumbs: I think we must have been stood 'shoulder to shoulder' at some points on the line.
It was a proper base with proper planes, but alas it didn't fit into the great scheme of things

Re: Mirage 2000-5 and Rafale in lovely winter light

Hi Kevin,
Very nice and clear & crisp shots. The Mirages bring back so many good memories (of those same aircraft) back in the North Sea ACMI deployment days into Waddington. Seems an absolute age ago now :'(
